Leading integrated risk management provider hires industry heavyweight to head up product delivery.
SureCloud, a provider of cloud-based Integrated Risk Management (IRM) applications and cybersecurity services, has appointed Alex Brown to the role of Director of Product, in charge of defining and delivering the firms’ ongoing product portfolio.
Brown was previously Director of Product Management for Digital Compliance and GDPR Solutions at Veritas, where he led global product development with a focus on helping customers to achieve GDPR requirements. Prior to that, he spent nine years at Symantec in a variety of product management roles, covering emerging products, archiving and eDiscovery, and backup and recovery solutions.
At SureCloud, he will be ultimately responsible for ensuring that the firm develops technology solutions that meet the needs of its customers and the wider marketplace. He will be focussed on further developing SureCloud’s cloud-based platform for deploying governance, risk, compliance and cybersecurity applications, which enables organizations to automate existing manual processes and demonstrate compliance.
Commenting on his appointment, Brown said: “SureCloud has a unique and innovative solution, which has enabled it to record consistently stellar growth year after year. In addition to this, when you look at the existing customer base and see the impressive names the firm is already working with, it’s clear that the business has unlimited potential. It’s fantastic to be joining such a fast-growing and agile company, and I’m looking forward to playing an integral role in its future development.”
Richard Hibbert, CEO at SureCloud added: “SureCloud is an ambitious company both in terms of pure bottom-line growth and the development of new, market-leading solutions. Alex’s appointment will play a key role in both areas. He brings a wealth of industry experience that will be invaluable for us as we seek to capitalize on the successes we have already achieved.”
